Welcome to a Tour of the Grand Canyon (East Rim)
Last summer, my partner Maggie & I made a (July) trip cross country pulling an 8x5 UHaul from Bangor Maine to Portland Oregon via the "southern" route, then loaded up and made our way back via the "northern" route. We didn't really hurry but took time to stop and see places we had always wanted to. This tour below is a result of a "day drive" along the East Rim of the Grand Canyon. It was very hot!, and being among so many other "tourists" mad at us because we were not in as much of a hurry as they wanted made it seem hotter!! The sky provided us with beautiful (storm) cloud formations and by the end of the day when we made it to our last stop the weather front with massive thunder storms passed over. It was a relief to feel some rain. It was a trip we will never forget and one that we hope you will ejoy viewing a brief glimpse below (without the other tourists honking at you).

I used a Sony Mavica 75 with a Kiwi VR mount. 20 exposures @ 640x480. These exposures were stitched with QTVR Authoring Studio and then the resulting pano.pict files for each node were enhanced with Intellihance and downsampled within PhotoShop and then redone into reduced pano files that are better in size for the web. At this point I used QTVR-AS to create individual node pano movies and then used them to create a multi node scene from the individual nodes. Now this is where the fun began!! I had just received MapSaVR and NodeSaVR from Squamish Media Group, Inc. I scanned the brochure map that we got at the front gate and used MapSaVR to produce an interactive map under the pano-scene. And then finally I used NodeSaVR to "unpack" the Pano-Scene single file into a single page html web ready file with each of the node pano-movie files separated so that the whole tour is more stream lined & web friendly for browsers. This makes it extremely easy to replace a multinode movie with a singlenode version generated from NodeSaVR complete with hotspot link views.
